What our users think...

"Emerald's Health and Social Care journals are an excellent resource for students, faculty, and perhaps especially practitioners who are looking for relevant research and practice-based evidence that will be useful in their efforts to address health care needs around the world.

In particular, the journals on mental health and addiction are key resources for anyone preparing to enter the fields of social work, psychology, or psychiatry.  As an author of numerous articles that have appeared in Advances in Dual Diagnosis, I have had the opportunity to get practice-based findings on addressing both conditions in an integrated fashion out into the field quickly and in a highly accessible format."
